Two questions I can't seem to find the answer for:

1.) Is there a larger printable hex map (say 4' x 4') that I can take to Kinkos and have them print and laminate?

2.) Is there a 'cheat sheet' for turns and combat? Or at least a checklist to keep track of which step you're on during the turn?

1) no -- but there's several manufactored large maps out there ---
-- May be players that developed one for their own use --
2) no/yes -- not in a format I believe your referring to (probably excel type charts individuals have developed for their use) ---
-- Klingon/Romulan Border has a Player Reference Card with
Sequence play on one side and Weapons/ Damage charts
on the other (laminated so you can mark it just like Ship Cards)--

1) You can use the SFB map available on the ADB website:

http://www.starfleetgames.com/sfb/sfin/Hex_Map_4230_numbered.pdf

2) You can use the Thomas Impulse Tracking System available as spare parts from Orion Attack:

The map included in the SFB Module W is a two-part map with the larger 1.25 " hexes. When assembled and placed on the table, it forms a playing surface that's 4 feet across and about 3 1/2 feet across.

Module W can be found here: Module W

And I have to put in a shameless plug for the use of the Thomas Impulse Tracking System, too!

1. no
2. yes
like how bolo said, there is one in the romulan/ klingon border with it
there is also one that you can print off the commanders circle in the play aids.

[Looks innocently at Jean]

Well we had thought about naming it Tony's Impluse Tracking System, but we felt there were possiblilties of mistaking it for some other Tony. So, when we were developing it, and since Tony Thomas had done 99% of the work on it, we started using Thomas Impulse Tracking System. We have used it so long that it is just second nature... Smile

Yeah.. what he said.
It was just an innocent acknowledgement of the hard work put forth by a freindly and loveable fan. Wink

Honest. We never once considered what the acronym would be... Rolling Eyes

cool I had similar cards to the thomas system for SFB. (I think) perhaps Orions Attack should be my next expansion to buy.

Those are the SFB Impulse cards which are still available in Module A+.

In all seriousness, what does the Thomas Impulse Tracking System look like?

I bought Orion Attack and the only extra thing that was in it were those movement cards. Was there supposed to be something laminated in that product?

You can order the cards as spare parts here:

http://store.starfleetstore.com/merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=S&Product_Code=4106-6&Category_Code=FCOASP

If you have Orion Attack (Item 4106) you should have these in there. They are perforated cardstock. You can get them laminated if you wish.
